If you've read much of this blog you might think otherwise, yet I have an inner battle when it comes to sharing my personal stories. I believe I'm by no means alone in this feeling. Nonetheless the struggle is real.
Not so long ago I was having coffee with a friend and we started sharing some deeply personal experiences. At the end I said to him how much I appreciated our chats and tagged on a bit of preachy advice. I said "it helps no one for us to keep these stories bottled up inside". Clearly I'm a hypocrite just by my apprehension to do that very thing.
Yet as silly as it sounds to take my own advice I kept thinking on this idea. Everything changes, nothing lasts forever. We're all going to die and in 100-150 years everyone alive today won't really matter. Unless we make today matter. Today is technically all we have. And for many today might be their last.
Now this might sound bleak or depressing to some, yet to me it gives me strength. If today is all I have then, what I choose to do today is far more important than what I did yesterday and tomorrow hasn't or may never happen. So it's this resolve that I'd like to uncork untold stories and I encourage you to do the same.
Imagine what that could do for you or myself if we just intentionally shared more? If we all said today is a good day to be at peace with giving this to the universe.
Thank you so much for following along. I wish you peace and courage as you choose to share your untold stories.
